I have been here almost every day during my trip to Dubai. It's my favorite Middle-eastern restaurant. They have a few outlets, but I think the best one is at Dubai Mall. The food tastes exceptionally good at Dubai Mall. My favorite is the Hommos. I have cravings for the Hommos when I am out of Dubai. I highly recommend... More

I really love Al Hallab. This is the only restaurant I must visit everytime I go to Dubai. I love the hot hummus with lamb and pine nuts. The meat platters are delicious, but I love the mezzes! Sitting on the terrace facing the Burj Khalifa and the fountain never hurts anyone :)

This was the venue for a mini Reunion of college friends and their families. I had my doubts on being able to find it inside the huge Dubai Mall. But I found it astonishingly easy to locate with the instructions I got. Am sharing it.... find the waterfalls, go two flights up and u are there. You will know that... More

We were sitting outside and had the menu for 170AED. The quantity as well as quality were amazing. We were two people and could not finish the food at all. Also the atmosphere with Burj Kalifa and the Dubai Fontaine was incredible. It made our last evening in Dubai perfect and we will come back for sure!

I went to this restaurant couple of times and it was great. So tasty and a lot of choices as an Arabic cuisine. it has an outdoor section so u can smoke or have shisha while watching the dancing fountain of Khalifa tower.

I am a very fussy eater - so for me to write a review with 5 stars is saying something, great good - great for a vegetarian like me - try the halloumi - houmous, falafel, fattoush salad, spicy potatoes, and the mocktails are great - loving the rainbow fruit drink!

Staying in Downtown Dubai

Neighborhood Profile
Downtown Dubai
You can’t fail to miss Dubai’s iconic Burj Khalifa, the world’s tallest building. It towers over the city and resides in the prestigious Downtown development. Once an old army base, Downtown is now the jewel in Dubai’s crown, a beautiful residential and leisure area housing not only the world’s tallest building, but the world’s largest fountains and mall. Wide marble sidewalks are perfect for strolling, with restaurants, art galleries and children’s play areas. Specially commissioned sculptures line the roads and Downtown is often used as a canvas for modern art displays and community events such as Classic Car Shows and National Day parades. In the cooler months, cross one of the many bridges to the Burj Khalifa park and enjoy a picnic alongside residents and visitors, or enjoy a lunch or dinner watch the dancing fountains. Because of its mixed use, Downtown is a fantastic place to mix with Dubai residents and locals and watch real life unfold in a cosmopolitan environment.
